Frank and I got to the Nursing Home after the Six Birthday Party and she was not back from the ER yet. And Kelly, her nurse, called when we were in the middle of dinner. We left to check out the new stitches
Oh my. She looks bad! She looks like a prize fighter who lost the fight. A huge bandage on the forehead over her right eye, where that bone protrudes. She has 23 stitches. And her face is very swollen, black eye for sure to come.
And she also must have hit the left side of her nose so it is beginning to swell too.
The ER doc gave her some pain meds and some antibiotics. So she was deep sleeping when we arrived. We didn't wake her, let her sleep and heal. Tomorrow she will be sore.
I remember Aunt Edith, my Alzheimer Aunt as we called her (I took care of her for 10 years before she died) fell one time at the Council on Aging. She broke her arm. And said it never hurt at all.
So mom my not fell pain. But the pain pills will help anyway.
